Immediately after picking Ryan, Romney camp distances itself from Ryan budget

This is one hapless campaign. In the immediate aftermath of picking the Budget wonk darling of the right-wing, the Romney campaign has circulated talking points to Republicans distancing themselves from the campaign.

A Republican source (what does that tell you?) has given CNN the Romney campaign Ryan talking points.

Questions and Answers About The Romney/Ryan Ticket:

1) Does this mean Mitt Romney is adopting the Paul Ryan plan?

· Gov. Romney applauds Paul Ryan for going in the right direction with his budget, and as president he will be putting together his own plan for cutting the deficit and putting the budget on a path to balance.

· Romney’s administration will go through the budget line by line and ask two questions: Can we afford it? And, if not, should we borrow money from China to pay for it?

· Mitt Romney will start with the easiest cut of all: Obamacare, a trillion-dollar entitlement we don’t want and can’t afford.Questions and Answers About The Romney/Ryan Ticket:
